It seems that all of my outlets on the second floor do not have a ground. I have aÂ “smart” power strips that show “no ground” and the bathroom GCFI is tripped. All outlets have bare copper ground wires and all the grounds go to the same screw terminal in the breaker box.
Thanks for your electrical question Tom.
The circuit will need to be tested to determine where the connection to the ground has been lost.
